In a startling and violent move against the dreaded Seinfeld Curse, "Seinfeld" alum Julia Louis-Dreyfus is becoming the Vice President of the United States for HBO in the comedy series "Veep." Dreyfus is playing former United States Senator Selina Meyer, who after becoming Vice President realizes the job is a lot wackier than she was expecting. Joining her in this Great American Experiment are Anna Chlumsky as her Chief of Staff, and Buster Bluth himself, Tony Hale, as her "right-hand man." Reid Scott, Tim Simons and Matt Walsh are also in the cast. It's set to premiere in the election year of 2012

That's quite a cast, and I have to admit I'm pretty optimistic about it, but come on- will America really ever be ready for a Vice President who isn't a white male? This is clearly just another liberal fantasy from HBO. (Deadline)
